Busy Day Pork Chops

The name says it all – perfect for a busy-day. Not only are these pork chops yummy, the prep work is minimal and they don’t require much attention, aside from a quick flip about 15 minutes into the baking time. I’d even be willing to bet you’ve got all the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

I found this recipe on Taste of Home while searching for diabetic friendly main dishes. When I told the family we were going to try a pork chop recipe that was healthy and diabetic friendly, they didn’t look happy. But those looks of skepticism turned into smiles with the very first bite.  It’s now a popular recipe in our house simply because these chops taste good. The fact that they are diabetic friendly is just a nice bonus.

Busy-Day Pork Chops
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking pan lightly with cooking spray, set aside.

Pour milk into a pie plate or a shallow bowl, set aside.

On a sheet of waxed paper, combine the cheese, bread crumbs, salt, garlic powder and pepper.

Dip pork chops in milk, then coat with crumb mixture.

Place pork chops on baking pan; spritz chops with cooking spray. Bake for about 30 minutes, turning mid-way through.

Enjoy!

A leafy salad and Sautéed Summer Squash make one yummy plate. Enjoy!
